Loyal and Protective
German shepherds are loyal to their family members and also very protective. They make great watchdogs and will alert you if there is any danger. This is especially helpful if you have small children or if you live in a high-crime area. When you go on walks, your dog will stay by your side to keep you safe. This is only if the dog is well socialized and has proper training, however. You will find German Shepherds are intelligent dogs and are not hard to train. This means along with training with a trainer you can also train your dog at home. If you have other dogs in your home, it may take your German shepherd to get used to them but once they do your dogs will become friends.
German shepherds make great family dogs. They are gentle around small children if trained properly. You will feel much easier knowing your dog is with your child when they are outside playing. If you have a large family, this is the perfect dog for you. German shepherds love to be around a lot of people and do well with chaos. You should not leave your dog alone for long periods of time, however, or they may let you know they do not like this. They also like to have a job to do in your home, which may be bringing you things, helping you outside, etc.
German shepherds are very active dogs so if you are an active family, this dog will fit in well. If you are not an active family, however, you should not get a German shepherd. Without the proper exercise, the dog will not be happy and also get very hyper inside your home. Exercise includes going on long walks each day, playing with your dog in a large backyard, taking them hiking, and these dogs also love to swim. Take your German shepherd with you when you can. This gives them more exercise and also helps with socialization.
